Mo' upgrades, Mo' Problems

Recommended Posts

HarrumphI installed the windows 7 beta several months ago and it has been just great, FSX runs smooth and all my addons etc work, About a month ago IE8 stopped connecting to the internet. I still have internet access, ASX gets online for weather, FireFox surfs the net just fine, but FSX cannot download weather(which is why I use ASX).I was in a happy limbo figuring I would just wait for the fill Windows 7 to install and maybe the problem would spontaneously fix itself. Last night I got the RealAir Duke which needs to connect online to activate, it must be using the same "path" as IE8 and FSX because it keeps saying that there is no internet connection when there clearly is...I figure the problem must be in some setting somewhere, but I can't for the life of me figure it out, I have set and reset everything, and even did a repair/install of the Windows 7 beta, IE8 is pretty inspisated into Windows 7 and it does not give an option to uninstall it so that firefox becomes my only browser.I am at the end of my rope, and am thinking of going back to Vista 64 just to get access via IE and get the plane activated, but that requires and entire re-install of FSX and all my addons which is definitely something I am trying to avoid.I have this great plane just sitting on the hard-drive mocking me...Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in Advance.
